    Dear RMCC group,

    A friend of mine write this article which might be of interest to all of you: http://www.furious.com/perfect/miltonbabbittallset.html

    Was the composer a jazz artist?, by Daniel Barbiero
    "One of the more interesting results of Gunther Schuller's efforts to bring classical and jazz into dialogue with each other was his commissioning of one of the most rigorous--and wittiest--works to bring jazz and state-of-the-art classical composition
    into contact: Milton Babbitt's "All Set" for an octet of trumpet, trombone, alto and tenor saxophones, vibraphone, piano, double bass and drums."

    Best wishes,
